A good read for Mr and for Mrs, sending admonishments flying back and forth. Written in a Victorian style (if the date is to be believed, it is early 20th. Century)the man is head of the household, and the lady must not be caught yawning as he finishes his last pipe! There is plenty to return in terms of what can be expected from the husband and, contrary to Harry Enfield sketches you might have seen, exhorting ladies to have opinions all of their own. Clearly an idea which will never catch on.
All in all it's a grin, and a quick, light read which is perfect as a cheeky stocking filler for a recalcitrant wife.
